ESL Classes

A basic working knowledge of English is necessary to function in the United States. Hanul addresses immigrants’ struggles with the language barrier through English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. There are two tracks of classes from which to choose. One, students may opt to enroll in ESL classes taught by HFA instructors. These classes are offered Mondays through Thursdays throughout the year. Please contact Naraegoun Ahn at 773-478-8851 ext. 106 or nahn@hanulusa.org to register. 

ESL 1:1 or Small Group Tutoring

The second ESL option at Hanul Family Alliance is free one-on-one or small group tutoring. We pair you with trained volunteer tutors and you meet on a weekly basis. You can improve your literacy skills in a smaller focused setting. We are proud to be a recipient of The Illinois Secretary of State Library Adult Volunteer Literacy Grant that helps fund for this program. If you are interested in volunteering or know anyone interested in free English tutoring, please contact Charlene Choi at 773-478-8851 ext. 111 or cchoi@hanulusa.org.

*If interested in volunteering as tutor, click here for the application form and email to cchoi@hanulusa.org.
